Eaves, Stuart rally Red Wings past Stars

Patrick Eaves had three goals, Brad Stuart scored
the tiebreaker at 5:29 of the third period, and the Detroit Red
Wings rallied for a 7-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday
night.
Goals by Brad Richards, Mark Fistric and Jamie Benn in a 1:14
span in the second period gave the Stars a 3-1 lead. But Eaves
struck on the power play after Nicklas Lidstrom scored at even
strength to help the Red Wings tie it at 3 entering the final
period. Stuart's blast from the point got past goalie Kari
Lehtonen, who was screened by Detroit's Justin Abdelkader.
Kris Draper's goal from the left circle at 13:23 of the third,
and Eaves' second of the night 44 seconds later gave Detroit a
three-goal edge. Eaves completed his hat trick with an empty-netter
at 17:46.
Jiri Hudler contributed a first-period power-play goal, and
Jimmy Howard made 28 saves for the Wings, who improved to 52 points
to tighten their grip on first place in the Western Conference.
